I did a little digging to find some companies that specialize in "Aquatic Invasive" management and abatement.
Just a little background. Here is the most recent NYS DEC Plan.
Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program Useful Web Links. Lake Bonaparte is part of this organization
Here is the Black Lake Management Report. It was completed by an environmental group from Syracuse. The plan was necessary for the grant process. NYS Federation of Lakes has sample management plans for those wishing to avoid the costs of hiring specialists.
